The Molinari Quartet presents a concert entitled 15th Anniversary Favourites by playing composers that marked the Quartet’s history over the years.
You will hear quartets by Sofia Gubaidulina, Béla Bartók, Alfred Schnittke and Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer.
The Molinari Quartet has played the full quartet cycles of these four great composers and has recorded the cycles of Schafer and Schnittke. A CD of Gubaidulina’s quartets will be also recorded in 2013.
From six quartets in 1997, (year of the foundation of the Molinari Quartet), Schafer’s production is now at twelve thanks in part to the Molinari Quartet’s commitment towards Schafer’s music. For its’15th anniversary, the Molinari Quartet commissioned the 12th quartet thanks to the generosity of Mrs Phyllis Lambert. This work will be premiered during the May 17th concert and composer Schafer will be in Montreal for the event.
